Creditor Harassment & Bankruptcy
Need help from a St. Petersburg bankruptcy lawyer?
If you or a loved one is facing overwhelming debt,
bankruptcy or foreclosure, it is very possible that you have been the victim of some form of
creditor harassment. It is important to contact an attorney experienced with these matters
as soon as possible. You do have rights as a consumer, and you do not
have to be subject to this type of harassment or creditor abuse.
Creditor Protection and Consumer Rights
Federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA),
Florida Consumer Collection Practices Act (FCCPA) and
Telephone Consumer Protection Act offer consumers protection against creditor harassment. Unfortunately,
some creditors still utilize a number of unlawful practices in their attempt
to collect the money they are owed. Debt collectors know that a person
in debt is likely to be embarrassed by the situation or may feel overwhelmed.
They prey on these emotions and may use threats to try to coerce a debtor
into paying. They may demand money that the debtor does not actually owe.
They may contact friends and family members or pretend to be someone else
in an attempt to pressure a debtor.
